Yesterday was an amazing day here in Maryland. I took the opportunity to walk along the Severn River at a local beach which is part of Sullivan’s Cove. There is a live bog here, which is vital to filtering out pollutants. I had no intention of doing a Weekly Photo Challenge; being that I was completely stumped about the word “Hope”. After taking photos of a Mallard Couple, I decided to take a walk along the beach. Sadly, my thoughts of nature and it’s beauty became littered, literally with litter. My hope is have people more aware of taking responsibility for their trash. Residents, boaters, visitors need to be aware that it just doesn’t disappear if it lands in the water. We want to enjoy these natural wonders and they are vital to our existence. Wow! There it is…”Hope”! I did pick these items up by the way; with a stick.
